Our school program for children in preschool through sixth grade aims to deepen their Jewish experience and knowledge in order to strengthen faith in God, love of Torah and identification with the Jewish people. Through experiential programming and classroom learning, we build meaningful relationships and Jewish involvement among families in our synagogue.

We strongly believe that Judaism contains answers to the challenges and questions confronting our children today. By learning about Jewish beliefs and values, exploring our traditions and history, and confronting current world issues, children can discover answers for themselves and develop meaningful, rewarding lives that will continually renew, inspire and transform themselves and their community.
